Set Permissions for Folders or Files
Administrators can deny user-groups the permissions required to open or edit files, maps, and folders.
- In the content library, choose the resources that you want to edit permissions for by doing one of the following:
Option Description To set permissions for a single resource, right-click the folder, map, or file and select Set Permissions. To set permissions for a folder and subfolders, right-click the folder, and select . To set permissions for a map, map dependencies, and resource-only files appended to the map, right-click the map, and select . To set permissions for multiple resources (including subfolders, map dependencies, and resource-only files), do the following:
- Select the folders, maps, and files.
- Right-click any selected resource.
- Select .
- Include or exclude the related resources by doing any of the following:
- To include the subfolders, select the Include child folders check box.
- If you don't want to include the dependencies of a given
map, like its child topics and submaps, clear the Include dependencies check box.Important: The Include dependencies option only includes the direct dependencies of the map. It does not include the binary files.
- If you don't want to change the resource-only files in a
map, clear the Include resource-only files check
box.Tip: For example, the resource-only files are your warehouse topics that have the
@processing-role="resource-only"attribute assigned to their
<topicref>elements. They are appended in a map but are not included in the output.
- If you want to include all map dependencies, including its indirect dependencies and binary files (non-text files like images), select the Include all dependencies check box.
- Add an access rule by doing the following:
- Click Add New Rule.
- From the Select group drop-down menu, select a group.
- From the Allowed drop-down menu, select Allowed or Denied.Note: Selecting Allowed only provides more granular access to files when there are more broad Denied permissions already applied to a parent-resource of the file you are applying this permissions rule to. By default, all users are allowed access to files based on their user-type.
- If applicable, check the Write Access checkbox.
- If applicable, check the Read Access checkbox.
- Click Add New Rule.
- If you want to add more rules, repeat 3.
- Click Save.
